Wooden Wine Rack

Needing a out-of-the-box birthday gift idea for my partner, I decided a hand crafted wine rack would be the perfect idea for a wine lover.

However, having never built anything from wood more complicated than a wooden pencil case in Intermediate Woodwork class, I was a bit out of my depth.

My idea required no fastenings, instead using interlocking panels to achieve the structure. Although simple enough, I mocked it up in SolidWorks to sanity check my calculations.

I then through the planks of pine through the table saw to the correct lengths as well as cutting the slots and angle cuts for the base. And it all slotted together perfectly.

The panels were stained and assembled and made an excellent gift.
